The following day Kayla's head was still aching, she couldn't stop running the different scenarios through her head. She didn't know what was right anymore, or which good outweighed which bad. It seemed no matter what Dean and Sam chose, the bad was far worse. There was no good choice. The whole thing made her nauseous.

"You okay?" Sam zipped up his bag.

She didn't answer at first. "I guess."

"You can still talk to me you know. I haven't lost that with you too have I?"

"It's not that, I just…I don't know what to say."

He chuckled under his breath. "That's a first."

She smirked. "Shut up."

Dean came in with a familiar brown paper bag. "Who's up?" Kayla and Sam both raised their hands and he grinned. "That's what I like to see." He set three glasses on the desk.

Suddenly Cas appeared in the room, he wavered on his feet. Sam spun around and grabbed him before he could fall. "Castiel whoa, hey."

Dean turned to help him. "You made it."

"I did." He wiped some of the blood from his nose. "I'm very surprised." His knees buckled underneath him.

"You're okay." They brought him to the bed and laid him on his back, his eyes rolled back and he passed out.

"I'm glad I got the booze." Dean cracked open the bottle and handed them each a glass. "Well, this is it." He poured it around.

Sam swirled the glass. "This is what?"

"Team Free Will." He set the bottle down. "One ex-blood junkie, one dropout with six bucks to his name, one…" he glanced to Kayla. "Incredibly insane hunter that doesn't know it's safer to get the hell out…and Mr. Comatose over there."

"That's not funny." Sam took a drink.

He shook his head. "I'm not laughing."

"They all say we say yes."

"I know. It's getting annoying."

"What if they're right?"

"They're not."

"I mean, why would we, either of us but, we've been weak before."


"Michael got dad to say yes."

"That was different. Anna was about to kill mom."

"And if you could save mom? What would you say? What if it was Kayla."

"Don't," he stopped himself from sounding too vicious. "Don't even say that."

"You know they're thinking about it."

"I think they know that would be a mistake."

"I think time is running short and they're soon to not give a damn what you think about it." Kayla stated. It was a possibility that had been in her head for awhile. Alistair wasn't the only one who could use her.

Dean looked at her. It wasn't like they could hide her from heaven and hell, there was no way. She was safer with them, wasn't she?

"I'm just voicing an idea, I just…I mean it's not like I'd leave anyway."

"Well I always knew you were a sucker for punishment."
